United Hebrew Short-Term Rehab Earns Top Rating from US News & World Report

November 07

In the just-issued U.S. News & World Report quality ratings for short-stay facilities, we have come out on top! Our short-term rehabilitation center, staffed by Burke Rehabilitation therapists, earned a “high performing” rating — the highest possible — for the quality of care provided to short-stay residents on United Hebrew’s campus in New Rochelle. The new rating aims to provide patients with a clearer view of the quality of care provided by nursing homes to short-stay patients in need of intensive rehabilitation or nursing services before they return home after a surgery, stroke, accident or illness, according to U.S. News. Out of nearly 13,000 facilities that were evaluated, 2,042 earned a high performing rating in Short-Stay Rehabilitation.

That places United Hebrew in the top 15 percent!

We attribute this recognition to the expert and compassionate care provided by our staff, and to our partnership with Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, which brings highly trained therapists from the renowned facility to United Hebrew’s campus. Finding a short-term rehabilitation center with attentive and caring therapists who provide expert medical care can be a stressful decision, especially after one has major surgery or a life-changing health event. This rating will help families in the region to learn about such facilities via the nationally-respected U.S. News & World Report list.

United Hebrew provides cutting-edge therapy combined with compassionate care and the latest in rehabilitation equipment. That’s what helps our short-term patients regain their mobility, balance, and independence, so that they may return home as quickly as possible.

U.S. News & World Report’s Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating is based on nine quality measures focusing on staffing, outcomes, resident complaints and processes of care. United Hebrew scored above average on all of the measures, including the training level of nursing staff and the amount of physical rehabilitation that patients received, among others.

This recognition follows several other accolades we have received locally, regionally, and nationally for our patient-centered care, including the American College of Healthcare Administrators (ACHCA) Eli Pick Facility Leadership award, and the Women’s Choice Award. Read more here.
